WORTH This historical fiction book by A. LaFaye , is a waste of six dollars. The story was about always fighting between the orphan boy John Worth, and himself Nate. Right when they were almost about to come friends, they would fight again. I think this book is a good for ages 5 to 7 because it was so short and easy. The book did not suck me in and made me very distracted. I felt like I wanted to eat and watch T.V while reading it. This book took place in the 1800s and was published by Aladdin Paperbacks. The book in a way, is a lot like a nonfiction biography. Nate is jealous to always see his dad with John Worth laughing and all. And Ma despises John. So for you who like books about historical fiction, be my guest and buy it. But if you don't, don't waste your money because it will not suck you in.

I recomend this book to young readers out there. Its a book that teaches you life lessons and is realatible. Its a great book for the enitre family to read because it shows readers that people can learn to love again, even after tragidies. I recomend this book strongly.

Worth, by the talented young author, A. LaFaye, is the story of a poor, hard working ranch family, trying to make it down on the farm. This is one of those rare books, targeted for kids or young adults, but certainly interesting enough to entertain the old folks as well. Each character in the book seems real, has faults, has problems to deal with, and develops. Important social themes are richly mined in Worth, a book aptly titled. As a writer myself (Allergy-free Gardening, etc.) and as a former teacher, I admire this book on several levels. First, it is well told and engaging. Second, it is one that should have a very broad appeal, easily crossing various ethnic, economic and age-related barriers. Lastly, the book makes some excellent, important points, and does so in a heart-felt way, not preachy, not pushy, not in the least bit smacking of any artificiality. Worth would make a terrific movie and I hope some day it does just that. It has a lot going for it and it is easy to see why Worth has won so many literary prizes already. As a parent and a teacher, I highly recommend this fine book. Kids from nine to ninety will enjoy it and remember it.
